How to Send Money

You have three options when it comes to sending money to an inmate at Stewart Conservation Camp. You can send money by snail mail with a Lockbox Deposit Coupon (cashier's check or money order), online with a credit or debit card at the Access Corrections website, or by calling Access Corrections at 1-866-345-1884.

Coupons for mail-in lockbox deposits must be either printed or obtained from the inmate. The inmate is responsible for sending coupons to persons wishing to send the inmate money.

Please make sure the money order is payable to “ACCESS SECURE DEPOSITS” and mail the deposit slip and money order to:

Secure Deposits - Nevada DOC
P.O. Box 12486
St. Louis, MO 63132

Be aware that mailing a money order is an extremely slow process. Because of increased counterfeit activity, funds from ALL money orders and cashier's checks received directly by the Nevada Department of Corrections will not be available to the inmate until fourteen calendar days after receipt. 

If you use the Access Corrections website or phone number, the money will get to the inmate’s account much faster.

Programs For Inmates

The majority of the inmates at SCC work for the Nevada Division of Forestry and are assigned to twelve-man fire crews. Inmates also work for Silver State Industries, which runs the ranch, dairy and the Wild Horse Training Program. 

Some of the inmates are classified as community trustees who provide support services for several state agencies in Carson City, Nevada. Inmates at SCC can prepare for the General Education Development (GED) test. In addition, several self-help, and treatment programs are conducted by medical and mental health staff in the evenings.

Under the supervision of Silver State Industries, the ranch operates a commercial dairy, grows alfalfa, breeds and raises cattle and cares for horses in coordination with the Department of Agriculture and the Bureau of Land Management. The Wild Horse Program involves inmates training horses for adoption by the public.
